Nostalgia Now


How can some thing so new..make me reminisce already?
Can a new song make me feel nostalgic
For the present?
Sounds..leaving impressions..
Mood swinging sessions...
Where are you?
All that’s left is a faint whiff and a boot scuff..
This journey I cannot complete..
Do I even start?
Do I bring along my heart?
Journeys to Vienna in the back of a van
Do I scoot?...do I need a trip plan?
Do I risk a slap..?
Or just take a nap?
Must I think about this right now?
Nostalgia for this moment makes me smile
Mile after mile.....
I will anticipate..enjoy and then miss
this one moment...as it happens
And live happily ever after.
All in this one moment...

sounds like such a happy place!!
like the deeper point - question of starting a journey, investing emotion...such a 'me' kinda question..but i've learnt in life..can't always plan..gotta go with the flow..ride some waves..see where they take you..sometimes, it's most rewarding that way.
Now..I'm gonna scoot! lol
btw - loved those last 2 lines
moments to live happily ever after in..beautiful..

i agree with mooks, btw
there's a story
and a life lesson
intertwined
... i think
either way

I think we learn from our past and reflect on life's lessons often-- life is a journey, but often we like to look back on the past with fondness (an age of innocence) instead of journeying forward

I don't know that is how the poem made me feel-- like I'm too busy romanticizing about the past and looking back over my shoulder to look forward and move on to a happily ever after-- or maybe its because when I was a child adventures ended with happily ever after, but in day-to-day life I now know this is not the case

Afew weeks ago i was listening to a song...and a funny thing happened...its a brand new song...but i was getting these strong nostalgic feelings for the present..it was as if i knew..then when i want to come back to the here in now in 10-20 years from now..this song is gonna take me here...
and i was thinking sometimes that happens ..when something is happening or i meet someone ...that i know...i'm going to miss..i get sort of a 3 dimensional view of the moment...the anticipation (deciding how much to involve)..the enjoying...and the missing...all at once...
Hope this makes sense...

I feel that way too sometimes-- but I still think there are times in my life when I'm too busy wanting to go back or I'm too busy obsessing over how my actions affected (or may have affected)other people in the past that I forget life is going on all around me

Awesome poem-- very thought provoking

Hey I wonder if my post helped this along. Don't worry I'm not fishing for comments I got two from you already. lol I get the feelings you're talking about here with smells. For some it's music, for some it's smells. For some it can be colors or other things. I really liked this.

I like the post, and I like how you explained it in your comment... And I know what you mean, sometimes things are happening around you and you know that no matter what your present feelings about it are, you will one day be brought back to this moment in a peaceful and pleasant way... Nice.

memories... sometimes it's the little things that make us remember...
Whenever I hear certain songs, I'm reminded of one summer...years ago..
Whenever I see mustard... I'm reminded of my first pregnancy (I craved mustard, of all things)
It's the little things that count!
and Hi! I'm back:o)
